Over the weekend I received more then a few queries from fellow OmniPodders that live in Canada. All were wondering when they can expect the smaller OmniPod to arrive north of the border. So I tied a tiny electronic note to a digital sparrow and released him into the Internet. This encouraging bit of news is what came back...
"With U.S. FDA approval now in hand, we can move forward with our regulatory filings in Canada. We hope that we would begin selling the new OmniPod in Canada later in 2013." - Brian Roberts, CFO, Insulet
There you have it Canada, I hope that this was the kind of news that you were all hoping for. It's not concrete but Insulet is willing to tie themselves to a date, however vague, and I think that is worth be optimistic about. I'll let you know more when I do.
Oh, you know what, while you're here. I've been wondering this my entire adult life... What's a Canuck? Seriously, is it a bird, plant, slang or none of the above? I need to know, please. Thanks!
